No, seriously. And the house is freaking amazing.
The LA Times reports that the Minecraft creator, who’s had a pretty good year so far, bought a Beverly Hills spec mansion for $70 million. The house, built by handbag tycoon Bruce Makowsky, has a 2,500-bottle wine room, a 54-foot automated curved glass door that opens the room to a super pool with iPad controlled fountains and panoramic views, and a $200,000 candy room. So much candy.
What makes this all great is that the 8 room, 15 bathroom home was also being bid on by Queen of the Universe Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z. That’s right. The creator of Minecraft beat out the Queen of the Universe for this house.
Guess you could say that Jay-Z has 99 problems, and Notch is one.
